This is such a sweet little book. I think I like it so much because the text appears to be handwritten in pencil. I know it's silly, but I like the way it looks with the bright illustrations.

The strength that this book had and the reason that I picked it was that is the students can relate to the story line. There maybe times where the students think something is not appropriate or feel like they are not getting the attention. When the student realizes that everything happens for a reason he or she will be able to enjoy the attention that they are getting and accept those around them

Momo definitely does not like kissing! He is constantly running away from everyone who tries to lay a kiss on him; his aunts, his cousin Mimi, and his mother. But when his adorable baby brother is born, Momo just may find that kissing isn't so bad after all.

Emma Chichester Clark's monkey tale is adorable!
This is a cute story about a little boy monkey who is sick of kisses, especially when his new baby brother is born. However, he soon changes his tune after he spends time with his brother.

I used this story for a monkey-themed Spanish story time program.
Is it sad how amused I am with this monkey's disgust with kissing? Gentle message about love hidden in a bright and colorful animal book. In my box for my Smushy Feelings valentine storytime.

I love this book for small children. Why should children have to submit to being kissed when they don't want to. This puts the child's perspective. My 2 year old grandson loves it!
Nice story, perfect for kids who always hide from grandma's kisses. It has a sweet resolution which sees Momo monkey kiss his little brother instinctively to stop him crying.
This book is hilarious for the fact that the little monkey goes around picketing people (animals) kissing. He is thoroughly disgusted and the story has a fun ending.
I loved, and loved, and loved it!

cute and funny
I like this concept!+_+

aw... I will read and read it again
